refuse and resist

Two heartbreaking and inspiring views on the war in Iraq.

From the National Catholic Reporter, "What the Rest of the World Watched on Inauguration Day," by Sister Joan Chittister. I'm sure you saw the photo. I liked Sister Joan's description of Dublin commuters confronting their morning papers.

And on the growing war number of soldiers who are refusing to fight this immoral war, "'They Can't Throw Us All In Jail'", by Geov Parrish.

I am very attracted to these stories of dissenting servicepeople. I feel called to help. I have no idea yet what I'll do, but I have a feeling an opportunity will present itself.

Laura,
I just reviewed your site. I appreciate the depth of yout Humanity. I am sorry we are losing you. You remind me of John Irving's character 'John" the ex-patriat who moved to Canada after his friend's death. I really hope you have read "A PRAYER FOR OWEN MEANY"

That book holds a special place in my heart because it reminds me we always need to question the intentions of politicos at the top.

Don't give up on us.

Be safe,
J.
